The REALITY is that the risks to our drinking water from gas drilling go well beyond fracking

Spills, work site accidents, truck accidents and illegal activity can and do happen in every industry

With gas drilling, though, we're dealing with millions of gallons of dangerous and deadly chemicals, thousands of gas wells and millions of truck trips

Despite the best effort of industry, these events did occur

Disasters big and small will continue to occur and continue to put your drinking water at risk
